Hope Scarves Sends Packages to Women in all 50 States

Hope Scarves founder Lara MacGregor was first diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 30 years old and seven months pregnant. A friend of hers who faced cancer sent her a package containing encouraging notes of hope and several hand-me-down scarves in case she lost her hair. In 2012, MacGregor founded Hope Scarves with the intent to capture the stories of courageous women and encourage others by passing along scarves and stories of hope.

Hope ScarvesToday, Hope Scarves is a bustling office of volunteers and staff, sending nearly 50 scarves a week all around the world. Hope Scarves has sent over 8,000 scarves to all 50 states and 16 countries, spreading hope to people facing over 90 different types of cancer. The oldest scarf recipient is 92 and the youngest, 4.  The Hope Scarf Collection, which changes constantly, contains over 10,000 scarves and over 500 stories.

Last week, Hope Scarves partnered with SSM Health in St. Louis to donate 200 scarves to St. Mary’s Hospital, each with an encouraging note from the scarf’s previous owner. In the same week, founder Lara MacGregor was named by Today’s Woman Now as the 2018 most admired woman in the non-profit category.
